Went here for a group dinner recently, and this is a nice restaurant. They have a large room up stairs which can seat a large group in comfort. I had the onion soup to start which was really tasty but without being over powering. Then had the butternut squash tart which was nice but lacking a little in flavour. Follow... More

We've visited iris several times in the last few months, for Sunday lunch, Saturday night dinner and even their Guinea pig night. Every time the attentiveness and helpfulness of the staff had been of a consistently high standard. The menu rotation and creativity of the chef is something to be applauded, this is the standard all bistro restaurants should aspire... More

Good quality food at a very reasonable price. Early bird until 7p.m. was particularly reasonable but to be honest standard price is very affordable. Set menu was very good starter of scotch egg sounds unusual but... More

Anyone who writes a bad review of this place has no tastebuds or is an idiot. This restaurant is constantly serving high quality food with just the right amount of portions. The prices are really good for the food you get. We should be supporting independent restaurants in our own city. I recommend anyone to eat here. I've been loads... More

Visited this restaurant quite a while ago but we are still to this day recommending this lovely little restaurant to others. We decided to try the iris due to glowing reviews for my belated birthday meal and we were not disappointed at all. The only minor issue we did have was the table we were sat on as we were... More

Visited Iris with my sister who has been asking me to go for months. She loves the place and I can see why. The quality of the food was amazing and I couldn't believe how beautiful the presentation was. We eat out in North Yorkshire and love the Star at Harome and I was doubtful that Wakefield had a restaurant... More

Always wanted to try this place, so the early bird menu got us in. Fantastic price, fantastic food! The burger was really nice and the steak melted in your mouth! Pork pie starter was good and so was the haddock scotch egg! Our new fave place to go! :-) yum!!!!
